the studio

Located in Kingsway Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, BUD + BLOOM is a visual arts studio fuelled by a passion for unique and meaningful design. And also, coffee.


What began in 2019 as Canada's first ever cannafloral boutique has blossomed into an artisan space specializing in installations, weddings & events, photoshoot styling, set design, and interiors.


Owned and operated by visual artist, Nora Salem, BUD + BLOOM works with carefully selected creative teams on a contract basis dependent on each project's individual needs. Interested in being put on our call list? Hit that contact link below.

All cannabis designs include foliage free of charge, however, any and all consumable cannabis products must be provided by clients and signed off on prior to being incorporated into designs.

TLDR; no, we're not a dispensary.

We just make dope art and do dope art things.


Have a project or event you need help with outside of Edmonton?

Let's talk travel!

creative director &  owner

Born in Egypt and raised in small-town Alberta, I've always tried to relentlessly follow my labryinth of a heart in all things. After exploring the many varied paths of Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Fine Art, Psychology, and Floristry, I became well aware that I was not only a social butterfly, but a creative one, too. And since there isn't really a place in our current society where we're allowed to just be and do the things that feel right on an ongoing basis, I finally decided to start my own business so that I could get away from being boxed in by one single label and, instead, let my creative freak flag fly.


Without Mary Jane, I very likely - literally and figuratively - wouldn't be here to write this. She has been there on my darkest days, as well as my brightest. Guided me through my ruts and to my epiphanies. She's always connecting me with the truest and most beautiful parts of myself. And for that reason, I consider her one of my greatest plant allies on a daily basis.

So, even when the cannabis plant isn't visible in my work, her spirit is always undoubtedly there.

In my spare time, when I'm not awkwardly writing 'about me' blurbs, I enjoy cuddling up to my feline beasts, Dexter & Buddy, taking off on impromptu adventures, redecorating my home, and sleeping.
